Alto de São Mamede, also called Miradouro de São Mamede, has the highest point in this mountain range (maximum altitude - 1025m). 
The genesis of this mountain range was due to the Hercynian tectonics that compressed and bent the Ordovician-Siluric-Devonic rocks in such a way that it formed a large syncline. This is the highest point of the folding of this region, which is structured by quartzites and schists from the Devonian. From this natural viewpoint you can see and enjoy 360º views, to the south you can see the endless peneplain of Alentejo, and to the north the carving effect of the Tagus River in the Beiras Group (schist-graywak complex) as well as the igneous lithologies of the Massif Central.
